Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom,

Come have a relaxing week or long weekend on Lake Hopatcong.


Many updates just finished, and more to come.

Upstairs bathroom has new tiles, vanity, and toilet. New carpets everywhere. Completely new bathroom downstairs, New paint every where.

This home is situated in a quiet neighborhood with quiet neighbors with kids. This is a great house to enjoy and relax, have a bbq, with friends and or family. This is not a party house though. There are other houses on the lake where the neighbors don't care. This is a home for someone who wants to enjoy their days but not be woken up at night by some party animals going all night.

This house is directly on the lake, not across the street from the lake, not a house behind another house on the lake, and not a house with only lake access. You are on the lake with a dock. Experienced licensed boaters can use the dock to park their boats. No rental boat docking.

Like many lake houses, there are a decent amount of stairs to the lake (not too many from the street). This is not recommended if the stairs would be physically challenging to you.




All pots, pans, glassware, silverware, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. Just bring your clothes, food, and have fun.

Outdoor grill

This is a 2 bedroom with large entertainment kitchen, and 2 full bathrooms. You will have use of the patio overlooking the lake while you grill. You can hang out on the lawn or dock. There are over 8 restaurant/bars on the lake, each with different views and atmosphere. Eat at a different place each night. I can even provide some suggestions depending on what you are looking for and your mood.

There are boat rentals available at the local marinas, such as Lake's End and Sanbar Marina. You can call them and tour the lake. Take the boat to the famous Byram Cove and relax with hundreds of other boats.

Boat or drive to the Mini Golf Course at Alice's. I highly recommend Alice's for their food and atmosphere as well. Great hill top views.

House has off-street parking for 2 cars. There is also on-street parking. There are woods behind the house to add to that vacation feeling. There are plenty of parks locally for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding or whatever you like to do in the woods.

House includes everything you will need to enjoy your stay. Cable, Wifi, dishes, pots, pans. Bring you clothes and have fun.

About Rafael Torrico

Thank you for your interest in sharing our home. Living on the lake for over 17 years have been an amazing experience. I've met a lot of great people here in Hopatcong. Even though I enjoyed my time on Long Island. Every day when I come, especially in the summer, I feel like I'm on vacation. It's a great feeling.

Today, I am happily married with 2 young children. We both love the lake but decided we needed a larger place for our budding family. We originally wanted a larger house on the lake but unfortunately, it was out of our price range. We decided to rent the house some days during the summer and winter so we can afford to still come to Lake Hopatcong to enjoy the lake where most of our friends live. Our kids love the boat and we are very happy we kept a home on the lake. We ended moving a little farther west so we are still close to the lake and can come back for the day or a few days.

We thank you for your interest in our home and making it possible to enjoy the lake also.

Rafael Torrico purchased this house in 1999

Why Rafael Torrico chose Hopatcong

I originally found this property in 1999 when I came out to mountain bike locally from Long Island. I loved coming to more rural areas for my travels.

What makes this house unique

I loved the entire area for the amount and variety of beautiful nature adventures, for scenic hikes, adventurous mountain bike rides, wake boarding, snow boarding, and the friendliness of the people. There is so much to do and I never get bored. When I first came to look at the house it needed a lot of work and honestly my friends thought I was crazy for buying it. When I took that first walk out to the dock over looking the calming lake, I was hooked. I looked at the real estate agent and said, 'sold.' He was probably happier than me cause I only asked him to look at one property.

Perfect house for a lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great and perfect for a lake getaway! The house was very welcoming and the views of the Lake from the house were beautiful. The owner was super nice and helpful. He was very responsive to any questions we had while staying there. The house was clean, comfortable, well-maintained and equipped with everything we needed (i.e. bedding, towels, kitchen supplies, etc.). The bed was really comfortable. There was also a grill on the patio. This property also has its own dock that we were able to use during our stay. For all the boaters out there it – it was perfect. We were only a few minutes from most of the restaurants and bars on the water. We would highly recommend this place to people looking for a fun/relaxing weekend on the lake. Thanks again for such an amazing weekend!
